NOIR CITY 7: THE BIG CLOCK / STRANGE TRIANGLE
THE BIG CLOCK
(1948, Paramount, 95 min., scr. Jonathan Latimer, dir. John Farrow)
The editor of America's most popular true-crime magazine (Ray Milland) finds himself framed for murder after tangling with his tyrannical Murdoch-like publisher, played with sinister relish by Charles Laughton. One of the greatest suspense films of all time, based on the famed novel by Kenneth Fearing.
(1946, 20th Century-Fox, 65 min., dir. Ray McCarey)
From deep in the Fox vaults we extracted this wonderfully taut, yet nicely complex murder mystery featuring Scandinavian screen siren Signe Hasso as one of the coldest and most calculating femme fatales of the 1940s! If you were delighted by the deadly dames in such B gems as Decoy and Blonde Ice, you'll dig Hasso's version of the viperish vixen. Also starring B stalwart Preston Foster. NOT ON DVD!
